Quick FAQ:

Q: How long does it take? A: Because of the CPBC requirements for instructional hours, it typically takes about 6 months to complete the regular program: two - 3 hour evening webinars per week plus a "virtual lab" session which is also online.

Q: Accelerated? A: This option doubles the webinar sesions to four - 3 hour sessions per week and reduces the webinar duration to about 12 weeks plus the "virtual lab".

Q: How much does it cost? A: Tuition is $3950 plus $250 Application Fee and $300 Lab Fee for a total cost of $4500 (paid in 3 equal installments). A single initial full tuition payment option is available with a 10% discount. Textbooks are an extra ($200 - $300 in total). This fee structure is guaranteed to the end of 2021 and subject to review for 2022.

Q: How do I pay? A: An Interac e-Transfer is the simplest method. We do not accept Visa, MasterCard, etc. to keep costs down.

Q: Lab? A: There is online virtual lab session with a Licensed Inspector as the instructor and using video walkthrough, narrated slideshows, and downloaded pictures to simulate actual inspections in 5 houses here in Vernon. It providess students with an introduction to what to expect when they move on to "Field Training" and also provides practise in writing inspection reports.

Q: Why does "made in BC" matter? A: Building Performance is different in BC compared to, say Ontario or Florida, because of issues like climate and seismic activity, etc. Our licensing requirements are also unique.
